"Sleep help for our baby boy"
review of Tina Southwood - Maternity Nurse in St Neots
Sleep help for our baby boy
Our second son was only sleeping 20 minutes during the day and fitfully at night, at five months old. He had a tough start with feeding problems and reflux and every day felt like we were just containing the next meltdown. With a two year old toddler to care for as well, I was utterly exhausted and anxious as there seemed no rest and hours of wakefulness in the middle of the night. I had a similar problem with my older son who after trying every sleep technique I could read about continued in this pattern until about a year old. Tina talked about working on getting my baby to sleep for an hour and a half in the day and I really didn't believe that would be possible. She spent time listening and looking and assessing things like his reflux issues and then made suggestions. I stuck with it for a couple of weeks and adapted slightly under Tina’s guidance, when the first ideas didn't work. I am absolutely amazed to see him sleeping for eight hours through the night now and through several 45 minute sleep cycles in the day. We are still a work in progress but I have the confidence now to get the little one to sleep. Tina is a warm and caring person. Both my boys love her and I wish I had known about her talents years ago! She has made such a significant improvement to our family.
